Taking Things Seriously: 75 Objects With Unexpected Significance

Design by Carol Hayes

It's probably been done before, but I love the idea of this book: short essays about the one possession that occupies a big part of your life.


I haven't seen this in person yet, so I'm wondering if grouping the objects together so tightly allows them to pop from across the room, or if from a distance this looks like a still life instruction book.

Thought about grouping these as they've done here?

Buy this book from Amazon.com

Love it. Who is publisher/designer.

Princeton Architectural Press. Not sure of the designer.

It looks like the objects are real, not on a book cover, don't know if that's good or not.

Is it possible that I can run my potential book cover with you for review? I'm preparing to independently publish and need to be critiqued on the design. Possible?

i like the colors and way the various objects are set up... Otherwise it is a basic cover. Nothing too cool happening here on a type level or conceptual note. It's cool though.

The publisher said...

The designer is co-author Carol Hayes (Brooklyn, NY).

Noted. Thanks!

It's an interesting cover, but I wonder if it would look better if flipped horizontally and moved a little towards the spine. Somehow, that would make the spine look good too.

P.S: I love this blog, been lurking here a long time now.

This is a beautiful cover. I definitely am interested in the book because of the design
